Default Who all runs a 26-8.5 on a 8 inch rim? How do you like it?

Just wondering how many people run this. I have a set of 8.5 inch rims, and want to mount some 8.5 inch slicks on them for a local class. Most people I talk to run a 10 inch rim with this tire, but I only have the smaller size. Also would like to see some pics of cars with 8.5 slicks. Thanks..

I don't know of anyone using an 8" or 8.5" wheel. Most are running 10" wide wheels.

I agree they are better on 10inch rims, but I've been 1.30 60ft's with them on 8's. Here's a pic:

Nice picture wheels up!! I will be running a 8.5 rim also, so at least I know now that others are doing it with success..
BTW, do you run tubes in your tires? I plan on running them tubeless. Thanks..
